The project is at the ground floor of an existing 17 story office building, built above the Bloor Yonge subway Station. The renovation of the public and retail areas of the building improves the street presence with a feature entrance for the office lobby and subway. A feature ceiling undulates throughout and acts as a natural wayfinding system linking the access from three streets to the main lobby and the subway while covering the beams that support the tower above. On the main building façades, black glass screen frames the new retail units and announces the main entrance.
